Acrylic Invasion by PinstripeChris Acrylic Invasion by PinstripeChris
Made this piece last night as a re-visit to the idea of the Sharpie Vs Acrylic Battle- only in this particular version the acrylic is the invading force. Got to use a handful of methods I experimented with last week and put them altogether to make this one- even did a little bit of airbrushing to get some drop shadows in there to help add some life to it. This was a lot of fun and I didn't make too big of a mess :)

UPDATE: I had to take a million photos before I got one that showed the reds more accurate, so here it is!

How do you keep the white so clean-looking what with all the messing-looking acrylics about?

Good question- In this piece I did all the Sharpie Art 1st, then carefully masked off the entire design, then I did my acrylic work directly over it. Believe me, when it was still masked off it was covered end to end with acrylics- I like doing it this way because then I don't have to feel like I'm working around the design and avoiding it. Then as soon as I'm done putting or flinging paint I remove the mask so the paint edges come out cleaner. So the white you see is literally the gesso primer of the canvas that was never touched with material :)

By "masked off" do you mean like covering it with tape?

Correct- there are lots of different ways to do it, but in general yes- covering the areas you want to protect with tape

How did you manage to cover it so precisely? I'm guessing you are just a pro at it (a name like pinstripe kind of hints at that lol). Do you just carefully cut the shape of the tape with a razor after covering everything?

I really like this one. The effects you get with acrylics are amazing.

Poor sharpie its get invaded so much XD I like how you been using alot of red but. I think it be cool if you use blue next time. It should give a peacefull feeling but still be strong and vibrate. I think it would be cool.

Great suggestion :) I love red, but definitely will try a nice bright blue on the next one like this. Actually getting ready to do a black and lime green one today :D
